How To Use DORA Metrics

What's this blog post about?

DORA metrics are four key performance indicators that help assess a team's efficiency in software development. These metrics include Deployment Frequency, Change Lead Time, Time to Restore Service (Mean Time to Recovery), and Change Failure Rate. By measuring these metrics, teams can identify areas for improvement, track progress on initiatives, measure the impact of unrelated changes, and assess the effects of team scale events. However, it's crucial to remember that metrics should not be the answer but rather a tool to ask better questions and make real change in a team.
